Appliance insurance


Is it worth getting an appliance insurance? If yes, what company would you recommend?
Thanks!

Not unless it is high scale upper end stuff like Jenn-Air, SubZero, Viking, Wolf. Most appliances you can get the parts for out of pocket, or self-insure the replacement parts, unlike the higher end professional grade stuff. Those that I named, you have to hire a licensed tech to repair or fix stuff, or the manufacturer will not warranty the repair.

Keep money in a savings account for repairs or replacement. I never get the extended warranty on stuff, no matter how hard the store tries to push them. Only on the higher end stuff as I mentioned, would be the only time that I would go for the repair & maintenance plan, for the expected lifespan of the appliance, which is usually around five years min.
